Cayenne in the Rain
--------
So the first attack comes from an unlikely source. You can't see it well in this Kraut Kam, but that dark mass at the base of the stem is a swarm of red ants furiously attempting to drain every last drop of cabbage juice out of this little plant. What do they do with it, make some demented insect version of maple syrup? Somebody said ants hate cayenne pepper, so I sprinkled some around each plant. So maybe our kraut will taste like kim chee this year?
